Commercial Roaster at Home Setup

Here's my current setup in its temporary home (my garage). I've run through four seasoning roasts and two for consumption. I'm still trying to dial things in to a roast profile that seems reasonable, and I'm slowly getting there. Hopefully by the end of this week I'll be fairly happy with the output.

I have set up a Raspberry Pi for data logging with Artisan, which was a bit more involved than I expected. I also built a custom exhaust filter system that will hopefully allow me to roast without too many complaints from neighbors.

Here's hoping this is the last home roaster I ever buy!

The First Starbucks

When I was up in Seattle this week, I swing by and got a couple pictures of the first Starbucks. Didn't stop in, since I didn't want a coffee at 8pm.

Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room

The Starbucks Reserve location is unique. The best way that I can describe it is that it's like a nice winery, but for coffee. Everyone in there knows tons about coffee, and you can quiz them and ask tons of questions. I enjoyed talking with the people at the espresso bar, and a roaster who was talking to people while keeping an eye on his roast (shown in one of the pictures). Fun thing about him, he roasts on his grill at home with just a cast iron skillet and a whisk.

If you ever find yourself in Seattle, and are a fan of coffee, visit this place. It's unlike any other coffee place I've been to. Lots of fun, top notch coffee served, and I learned a lot.

Yesterday I built myself a carbonation rig to carbonate drinks. One of the first things I tried was cold brew coffee. It wasn't bad, but I'm going to need to work on a recipe.

I've had really good coffee soda before, and want something like that without as much sugar.
